|Andy George – President|
|I joined the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC (now Police Service of Northern Ireland) in 1999 and spent my first 8 years in a response team before moving to the Armed Response Unit for 10 years. I recently was successful on fast track Constable to Inspector and have been completing various rotations in force, the last being a Detective Inspector in CID.
I attended my first NBPA meeting in July 2016 and was elected onto the Cabinet as Sponsorship Co-Coordinator in October 2017. I was then elected as Male Vice President in October 2019 and now as President in October 2020.
NBPA Role: Vice President
|NBPA Role: Vice President
Staffordshire Role: Equality & Inclusion Officer
I am the Equality & Inclusion officer at Staffordshire Police working within HR.
I’ve always had the desire and motivation to help others and help those who feel disempowered.
Throughout my life I have experienced discrimination whether it was as at school, or my third day at work in uniform. These experiences have made me somewhat resilient and driven my desire for equality and equity.
I moved into the field of HR and positive action in 2015 and look to support officers and staff who are Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic – BAME as well as help to raise awareness of issues and topics that may affect BAME officers and staff and the BAME communities that we serve.
|NBPA Role: Met Reserve Seat) – Vice President National Black Police Association (Metropolitan Police)
Chris is a police sergeant with the Metropolitan Police and has 15 years service. He has been operational throughout his time so far, serving on Pan-London units as well as permanent custody and regular public order duties. Such a broad range of duties allows him to engage with many in the Met, meaning he has authenticity and credibility when involved in management board and national BPA business.
Chris is full-time Chair of the Met BPA, which represents the largest number of black officers in the UK.
His seat on the NBPA Cabinet is therefore an automatic one (aka Met Reserve Seat).
|NBPA Role: Sponsorship co-ordinator
T/Superintendent, Mo Aziz (BEM), is the Chair of Bedfordshire Police DSG.
Mo has been recognised for his outstanding contribution to the recruitment of police officers from diverse backgrounds. This contribution saw Bedfordshire Police recruit Black and Asian officers into the force, making Bedfordshire one of the leaders nationally in recruiting officers of a diverse background. Mo continues to support officers from all ranks in their policing journey as well as taking on new policing challenges for him self.
He has recently been selected to the NBPA cabinet and hopes to bring his diverse experience and knowledge to the national platform and endeavours to continue to make a positive difference.
